Marc Mclaughlin and John Beecher scored twice apiece for Boston.
The first period was scoreless. A deflected power play goal by Boston’s McLaughlin (1st goal of the preseason) gave Boston a 1-0 lead at 7:09 of the second period. McLaughlin tallied again at 11:55 of the third period. John Beecher added a deflection goal off his skate at 15:23 and then a shorthanded empty net goal at 17:12.
Felix Sandström played the first period in goal before leaving due to a lower-body injury. He only saw two shots, stopping both. Troy Grosenick played the final 40 minutes, making 20 saves on 23 shots. Linus Ullmark went the distance for Boston, recording a 21-save shutout.
The Flyers went 0-for-4 on the power play. They were 3-for-4 on the penalty kill.
